The eir Spiders awards, Ireland’s best known technology awards are celebrating 20 years this year. Every year brands compete to get shortlisted for their digital initiatives in the hope of winning a coveted eir Spider award on the evening.

Independent News & Media are delighted to be shortlisted this year for best business to business website The purpose of is to have one online destination where all advertisers can learn about INM’s product suite and audiences, and get ideas on how to engage with them in the most relevant way. The website also uses Cinemagraphs on the home page, which are still photographs in which a minor and repeated movement occurs. Cinemagraphs, which are published in either animated GIF format or as video, can give the illusion that the viewer is watching a video.

“This website was built as part of the brand refresh project for Independent News and Media, which incorporated the development of a new suite of visual assets, developing a new brand position and redeveloping our B2B marketing strategy. We are particularly proud to be shortlisted for this award as the website was completely designed and developed in-house by our own team, so it is a great acklowledgement of their hard work” Lia Bresnihan, Head of Digital Marketing.

This year’s awards will take place on the 29th October 2015 in the DoubleTree Hotel in Dublin and will be hosted by well known personalities Jennifer Maguire and Bernard O’Shea. Tickets to the event are available at
